BEIJING, June 21 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Dining is one of the top experiences for travelers. The China Guide ( ) knows that experiencing international cuisine can make the trip of a lifetime and is making the commitment to take travelers to good local restaurants on all of their China-wide tours.

Food is a large part of China's culture and is an important social activity. With so many flavors and ingredients to experience The China Guide wants to give everyone a proper culinary tasting. "We know it is a problem that travelers get taken to large tourist restaurants producing generic dishes with little variety and this is what we promise to avoid," says Judy Huang, Travel Manager of The China Guide. "We are making a promise to our guests to offer real experiences and that starts with local quality dining opportunities that offer operators just don't offer."

All restaurants included in The China Guide tours are personally selected by the staff and guides. The guides escort travelers to restaurants in local neighborhoods and make recommendations while helping with the ordering. Restaurants and ordering are kept flexible to client's tastes as there are so many regional options including spicy Sichuan, hot pot, dumplings and Peking Duck.

"We don't limit our guests either. Meals in our itineraries include unlimited dishes so that guests can sample a variety and get full. Standard drinks are endless as well which means local beer, tea and soft drinks," adds Huang. The China Guide encourages clients to try unusual things such as lotus root or sea cucumber which are not commonly available in the West. For clients with a special interest in Chinese cuisine, The China Guide offers trips to local food markets as well as cooking classes. Dumpling making classes are very popular with travelers and great for kids as well.
